Thankfully our national housing emergency is finally taking its rightful place as one of the top issues in this general election. Over the course of recent weeks – and years – it has risen up the agenda for politicians and public alike. And it’s easy to see why. Just this week, Shelter revealed that 135,000 children in Britain are homeless. The highest number in 12 years, it means that by the end of today, another 183 children will no longer have a permanent roof over their heads. As the cold weather kicks in we are all more aware of people sleeping on our streets, the most visible form of homelessness, which has risen 165% since 2010.
